The present is a product of the past. You have to know where you've been to understand where you are, and where you should be going. To help us understand where we've been, Dr. Virginia Bishop has compiled a history of services to blind and visually impaired infants and preschoolers. This book provides solid informational background of how we arrived where we are today, and serves as a reminder to all of us that we have a rich heritage of serving children, birth to five. This history chronicles the evolution of services and depicts the legacy of the leaders in our field.
